Summary
How much do you need to sacrifice to speak against what you believe is wrong? Ben is still a young boy when he discovers the answer to this question. The year is 1954 and Ben's family has been torn apart by the Hollywood blacklist. When neighborhood bullies call his father a communist, Ben realizes the importance of standing up for what he believes in. Through Ben's eyes, readers learn about the McCarthy era, its effects on Hollywood, and the true meaning of freedom.|Glossary of key words|Table of contents|Timeline of key events|Activities for further learning|Sources for further research|Author/Illustrator biography|Suggested websites|Informative sidebars|Each volume in this innovative historical-fiction series is designed to look like a scrapbook created by the story's main character.
